Row over CNN reporter's White House ban

Shep Smith responds to White House version of ‘disinvite’ of CNN reporter

Sarah Sanders, the White House spokeswoman, said:...

He also cited comments about the incident from White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwayMcCarthy on choosing the next Speaker: "I want it to be me" BBC interviewer to Spicer: "You have corrupted discourse for the entire world" Ivanka Trump's fashion company shutting down MORE, who said members of the news media need to show more respect while covering Trump.

Collins was barred from the White House event on Wednesday after she repeatedly asked Trump questions about his former longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin during an Oval Office meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

"As an aside, when the president attacks journalists, we question his motivation and try to discover the underlying reason".

When reporters asked him what words he used, he deflected.

The president had previously tweeted his frustration with Cohen, writing, "What kind of lawyer would tape a client?"

She was acting as the White House pool reporter - one of a rotating group of journalists, who will attend an event and write a report which all other networks can use.

‘Get me a Coke!’ What’s in the Trump-Cohen audio, what’s not
On that review, it is hard to understand the end of the tape as far as the form of proposed payment to AMI owner David Pecker. Trump also expressed concern that the recording had been terminated "while I was presumably saying positive things".

ISIS claims responsibility for Pakistani polling station blast
The group also claimed an attack earlier this month that killed 149 people at an election rally in Baluchistan province. More than 105 million people registered to vote in this election, at 85,000 polling stations.

Earlier this week, CNN published Cohen's audio recording of a conversation with Trump talking about a payment related to Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claims she had an affair with Trump.

The decision was announced by the White House press shop on a day when reporters and correspondents made their way to the building in hopes of getting the president to spout off on simmering issues, from Russian Federation to his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen. Collins was working as the press pool reporter on Wednesday and asking several questions as the press are ushered out of the room is common for the network reporter representing the pool.

"Just because the White House is uncomfortable with a question regarding the news of the day, doesn't mean the question isn't relevant and shouldn't be asked", CNN said in a statement.

The White House Correspondents' Association strongly condemned Collins's exclusion from Trump's appearance in the Rose Garden as "inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak". Sprays happen in such places as the Oval Office, at Cabinet meetings and other confabs the president wants in images or on audio. "It can not stand", WHCA President Olivier Knox said.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment about the ball.

The sentiment was echoed by Fox News anchor Bret Baier.

But when the logistical decision was made to have Trump travel by motorcade in 'The Beast, ' there was no longer an opportunity for the president to take questions. The president sometimes takes questions during the sessions.
